The museum in King's Lynn is preparing for an unusual event - the opening of a coffin excavated from the site of a medieval church. She has found Roman bodies buried under walls, offerings to Janus, the two-faced God, and she has unearthed the bones of soldiers killed only seventy years ago. This review and others are also published on Twitter, Instagram and my webpage https://sandysbookaday. As an Australian reader, I found much of the archaeological content of A Room Full of Bones particularly fascinating, as the retention of indigenous human remains and other significant items within both Australian and international museum collections is an ongoing controversy.

There are several strands to the plot - some of which are unnecessary and seem to have been thrown in simply to provide a few red herrings. At the end of book one I was worried I’d stop liking the books but she and Ruth’s changes to accommodate her makes me love the books even more.in " The BookBrowse Review" - BookBrowse's membership magazine, and in our weekly " Publishing This Week" newsletter. Don't know what happened to the first review I wrote probably did something while playing with my phone! As her convictions are tested, she and Nelson must discover how Aboriginal skulls, drug smuggling and the Aboriginal ritual of The Dreaming may hold the answer to these deaths – and be the key to their own survival.

However I’m well aware that I’m just dipping into this ongoing saga at a random point, and readers who have been invested in it from the beginning may strongly disagree with my wish to murder one of the main characters. Because it’s neither land nor sea, but something in-between, they saw it as a kind of bridge to the afterlife. In some ways this edition feels less structured or perhaps more far flung with plot, but I didn't mind. In this Ruth becomes involved in a literal 'room full of bones', that is a room in the basement of a museum owned by Lord Smith, whose grandfather collected aboriginal bones in Australia and took them home for his private collection.

I was not able to get into the Australian mysticism at all and as soon as people started dropping dead I guessed the true cause, which was much more feasible.

I’m not saying they were boring, I’m just saying I would have rathered reading these things from Nelson or Ruth’s point of view. Ditto Bob Woonunga always with the furs as he cares about his people/ancestors but not other sentient beings.Although the two deaths look like natural causes it is not thought likely and when threatening letters turn up the case gets even more sinister. Instead, she is racing through the King’s Lynn branch of Somerfield wondering whether chocolate fingers count as bad mothering and how much wine four mothers and assorted partners can be expected to drink. As her convictions are tested, Ruth and Nelson must discover how Aboriginal skulls, drug smuggling, and the mystery of "The Dreaming" hold the answer to these deaths, as well as the keys to their own survival.

So based on that, this entry in the wonderful Dr Ruth Galloway series would only rate three stars because the mystery is barely 50% of the story. Her bestselling series of Dr Ruth Galloway novels, featuring a forensic archaeologist, are set in Norfolk. Ruth’s university even has a Smith Professor of Local History, though he hasn’t been seen in public for years and Ruth thinks he may well be dead. Not surprising then that when the opportunity arises to renew her acquaintance with Max, she embraces it fully!Lord Smith's love of the natural world is shown in his magnificent collection of animals and birds, most of which he shot and stuffed himself. Only if she doesn't mention forensic techniques ever again, and if Cathbad is there, because Cathbad is cool. It reads like the kind of cosy, middle-class crime drama (with emphasis on the drama rather than the crime) that you’d watch with half your brain engaged on ITV on a Sunday night – and probably that’s what it’s aiming to be one day. One of the characters that is married gets pregnant and just ends things with her lover and it doesn't cross her mind that it might be his or she is so unethical that wants to bestow the child to her husband even though it might not be his!
